94 points and an Editors' Choice, Wine Enthusiast: "A beautifully ripe wine, layered with the richest fruit, the acidity offering a bright moment within the richness. Botrytis is there, like a hard core for the pillow of ripe apricots, lychees, spice and fine freshness." (06/10) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2007 Lafaurie-Peyraguey has fulfilled all my expectations since its impressive primeur showing. It is has a light, succinct nose with white peach, pear, apple-blossom and a touch of chalk dust. Good definition, although it needs a little more vitality. The palate is superb: very vibrant on the entry, marmalade, quince, mandarin and a touch of ginger, just a little disjointed towards the finish, good length. Time in bottle will allow this to coalesce. Drink 2014-2030.." (04/10) 91 points Wine Spectator: "Honey, dried pineapple, apricot and tropical fruit on the nose. Full-bodied and medium sweet, with a spice, dried fruit and honey aftertaste. Balanced and pretty. Best after 2012." (03/10)

Fat and rich are the first two words I wrote about this wine. Peach, pineapple and apricot fill the nose. The palate is fat with enough acidity to keep the richness in check with all of the apricot and pineapple along with a bit of spice. This is a great price for an 2007 Sauternes.
